MS and PhD openings in quantitative ecology 

We (https://quantmarineecolab.github.io/) have openings for MS and PhD students in quantitative ecology to start in Jan or Aug 2024. Students could work on a variety of projects, including the socio-ecological dynamics of small-scale fisheries, aquaculture mathematical modeling, or decision science related to how to optimize ecological monitoring programs.  

The applicant would be expected to have a strong data science or mathematical modeling background.  

Applicants that will be the most competitive for a position will have experience (and willingness to learn more) with R, quantitative skills (e.g., mathematical modeling, statistics), and field work. A basic understanding of Spanish, French, or American Sign Language is a plus for some of the labs projects.
